Derek Paravicini at the Jazz Age Garden Party! Sunday 31st August

Derek Paravicini at the Jazz Age Garden Party!
Sunday 31st August, Westonbirt House, Tetbury, Gloucestershire

This is an event that fans of Derek's jazz virtuosity mustn't miss, perhaps the best party of the summer. A huge grade 1 listed country house and grounds in the Cotswolds, hundreds of superb vintage cars on the lawn, absolutely everyone dressed in period, and a magical summer's evening picnic in the garden, with Derek performing a very special one-off vintage jazz set, with backing band. Completing an amazing evening for lovers of first-class music is another exceptional talent, Clare Teal, the UK's number female jazz singer, also with her own great backing band. All together an amazing evening…prepare to have your breath taken away! This is one event you just mustn't miss. "One of the most superb weekends we can remember…" wrote guests to the last event, "What a divine day, just wonderful."

Tickets are on sale now, and fans of Derek get a special £5 discount through the spirit of the age website, by quoting 'DEREK'. Visit the lovely period website for a great feel of a really first-class event.

The event is open from 10.30am – 8.00pm on both days to the public.
